I am afraid this wiki is severally wrong as the first book in the dark material trilogy is called The Golden Compass, not The Northern Lights.

No, you're sadly mistaken. The title you give is the one for the US market only, and was imposed by the US publisher against Philip Pullman's will; elsewhere in the English-speaking market, Pullman's chosen title of "Northern Lights" is used. — RobertATfm (talk) 01:45, September 4, 2015 (UTC)

Might it be prudent for the alternative name to be mentioned explicitly on this page, lest future editors encounter the same confusion? - Lucy 06:48, September 4, 2015 (UTC)
